FOREWORD 



The Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service functioning as the field 
unit of Agricultural Extimates of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, United 
States Department of Agriculture in cooperation with the Department of Economics, 
Agricultural Experiment Stations, University of Florida, again submits its annual 
summary of statistics on Florida's vegetable crops. 

This publication is the 8th in a series, and its presentation, with its seven 
preceding volumes, was made possible through the joint efforts of these two 
agencies. Through this cooperative agreement it has been possible to expand the 
statistical coverage of the department to include county production as well as 
production costs in specified areas. Shipment data are again presented through the 
cooperation of the Federal-State Marketing Bureau. Most shipments have been traced 
to the county of origin. 

Minor adjustments have been made throughout this publication as a result of 
the 1950 U. So Census. Baby linas and butterbeans are now included in the regular 
lima bean estimate where formerly fordhook type only was included. Sweet corn is 
now an official part of crop estimates since it has been established as a very 
important phase of Florida's commercial vegetable production. On the other hand, 
carrots and green peas (English) have been discontinued due to relative unimpor- 
tance. Shipment data are shown on miscellaneous crops such as okra, radishes, 
field peas, and bunched vegetables, but acreage and production data are inadequate 
to make current estimates on these minor crops. 

One of the main purposes in preparing regularly scheduled Government Crop 
Reports and Truck Crop News releases is to keep growers, shippers, and other inter- 
ested parties informed on such timely topics as total production, current yields, 
harvesting periods and general conditions from an unbiased viewpoint. 

Vfe gratefully acknowledge our indebtedness to each person and organization con- 
tributing to the development of these data. Their cooperation rakes these reports 
possible. With the exception of shipment info mat ion, the data contained in this 
publication are estimates and are based on reports by, and interviews xvith growers, 
shippers, marketing associations and organizations, seedsmen, railroad representa- 
tives, canners and other processors, the Agricultural Extension Service through its 
county agricultural agents, the Federal-State Inspection and Market Newsservice, 
the Florida State Marketing Bureau, the Florida State Marketing Eoard, the Produc- 
tion and Marketing Administration and other well informed sources. To each and all 
of you we again say a grateful "Thank You." 



INDEX 



Each crop generally carries the following sequence of data by season: Name of 
crop - Season; Acres for harvest, by Counties; Acreage, production and value - 
State summary; Acreage and production by counties and areas, 1S51-52; Shipping data; 
Per acre costs and returns. Crops that harvest in more than one season are combined 
in one total grouping classified as "All" and placed before the breakdown by season- 
al groupings. Yellow pages are placed mainly as dividers between crops with per 
acre : cost and returns on or adjacent thereto.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



SEASONAL^ GROUPINGS - In" order that competitive production within the State of Florida 
and the United ^tates may be classified on. a National basis under reasonably uniform 
groups, we have established a National pattern which is based on the most active har- 
vesting periods. These major groups are WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER, and FALL, The 
'WINTER group inoludes the months of January, February, and March; SPRING includes 
April, May, and June; . SUMMER includes July, August, and September (Florida carries 
no official summer commercial crops); and FALL includes October, November, and 
December. These periods are not rigidly fixed and the harvesting period for a par- 
ticular grouping may extend- over into the preceding or following group. However, in 
arranging o\ir data we have followed these groupings "in so far as it is practical. 
For example, it has been considered practical to carry cabbage, cauliflower , 
escarole, lettuce, and strawberries as one season crops A designating them WINTER 
since the volume production is .harvested gene rally -during January, February, and 
March. Since some systematic order of. grouping is necessary it is deemed best for 
all concerned to handle our classifications on a National basis even though they may 
not always agree with, some local designations now in use. 

PLANTED ACREAGE - The definition for planted acreage is based on a "loss of crop" 
concept. Estimates of planted acres for any seasonal grouping consist of acres for_ 
ha rvest (see next page) during that particular seasonal group plus any acreage plant- 
ed for harvest during the season, but which was lost or destroyed and did not pro- 
duce a crop in the season under consideration* If the acreage is lost and not re- 
planted it is counted as planted . If it is lost but replanted for harvest in the 
same season as the original acreage would have been harvested, the acreage replanted 
is not considered as additional acreage planted. However, if the- acreage lost is 
replanted for harvest in a later season, it is considered as planted for both 
seasons and as acres for harvest only for the latter season. 

AC RES FOR HARVEST - This is considered as being all acreage from xvhich a crop could 
nave been harvested had economic conditions (prices, available labor, etc.) warranted 
the harvest. It includes mature acreage on .which the harvest was postponed or 



delayed too long due to economic reasons and the production lost thereby. Acreage 
which produces such low yields or poor quality that the crop is not worth picking at 
any reasonable price is considered as crop failure and is not included in the acreage 
for harvest. Unharvested acreage which produces yields which would be harvested at 
reasonable prices is included in acreage for harvest. 

YIELD - Yield refers to total production of merchantable quality produced on an acre 
basis and may include some unharvested production left in fields for economic 
reasons. 

PRODUCTION - Total production represents the yield times (X) the acres for harvest. 
Production of value is that part of the production which was harvested and sold or 
utilized and does not include economic abandonment. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT - This category includes mature production not harvested be- 
cause of economic factors, such as low prices, shortage of labor, etc. Such loss of 
production includes quantities left in fields partially harvested as well as produc- 
tion on acreage abandoned for economic reasons. Acreage abandoned at any stage of 
growth before maturity will be considered as loss of acreage or crop failure rather 
than economic abandonment of production. 

UNIT VALUE OR PRICE - All prices used in this report are on an F.O.B. basis or its 
equivalent, less selling charges. In the case of some commodities which are sold in 
units other than the one listed, these units are converted into the equivalent of 
the ones used. 

TQTaL VALUE - The total value is the price per unit times (X) the production of 
value. 

CANNED' OR PROCESSED ACREAGE AND PRODUCTION - The acreage of vegetables in Florida 
planted solely for canning and other processing purposes during the period covered 
by this publication has been confined principally to cucumbers for pickles. The 
acreages of beans and tomatoes, the principal crops canned, are planted primarily 
for fresh market, but during recent years, substantial quantities have been canned 
or frozen. In order to show the utilization of the production from the acreage 
brought to harvest, three columns on production are used in the State Summaries. The 
first shows the total production with a footnote of any economic abandonment; the 
second shows the production in bushels sold for fresh market consumption; and the 
third shows the production in bushels sold for processing (either canned or frozen). 
Those desiring to know the equivalent acreage utilized for processing should divide 
the number of bushels processed by the average yield then generally round to the 
nearest hundred. The prices given for processed beans and tomatoes is based on a 
per ton price and reduced to a per bushel price (rounded to the nearest whole cent). 

COSTS AND RETURNS PER ACRE IN SELECTED AREAS IN FLORIDA - These tables represent the 
summarization of grower records or estimates of costs and returns per acre from 
several vegetable crops in the major producing areas of Florida for the 1951-52 
season as compiled by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations. In so far as 
possible, growing and harvesting costs have been separated and : labor items excluded 
from costs of materials. .. . 

MIXED CAR MOVEMENT - Total shipments of produce in mixed cars are shown by months on 
■age 106. These data include those equivalent cars shown in our regular shipment 
data under each specific crop carried in this publication.
